Whether we admit it or not, most of us spend a lot of time comparing ourselves to others. But what if our true superpower is learning just to be ourselves? This week, host Paula Felps is joined by Dr. Ronald Siegel, a psychotherapist, Harvard psychology professor and mindfulness expert whose latest research looks at what a climate of self-comparison is doing to undermine our happiness. His new book, The Extraordinary Gift of Being Ordinary: Finding Happiness Right Where You Are, looks at the trap of constant self-evaluation and explains how we can learn to let go of our comparison culture and live a more satisfying, happy life.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s natural for us to compare ourselves to others.
  • How social media has amplified the climate of self-comparison.
  • How practices like gratitude and mindfulness help minimize the effects of constant self-evaluation.
